Cilantro Lime Rice

Like Chipotle's


  • 1 tsp oil
  • 2 tbsp fresh cilantro chopped
  • 2/3 c white basmati rice
  • 1 c water
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 lime, juiced (please use the real thing here it is so much better)


  1. In a saucepan, heat oil until hot

  2. Add rice and stir for 1 minute, you are basically frying the rice in this step.

  3. Add lime juice, stir for 1 minute more.

  4. Add water and salt, bring to a boil

  5. Cover and turn down to simmer until rice is tender and the water is absorbed, about 18-20 minutes. Do not over cook this or it gets mushy.

  6. Add in the cilantro, stir, and serve
